A January Bride by Deborah Raney ~ Book Review

Book Summary:

Who can work in a house that's overrun by contractors and carpenters? Not Madeleine Houser, a successful novelist who gladly accepts the help of her octogenarian friend, Ginny, to arrange for a temporary office in the charming bed and breakfast owned by Ginny's friend, Arthur. Maddie’s never met the innkeeper––but a friendship grows between them as Maddie and Arthur leave messages for each other each day. To Maddie’s alternate delight and chagrin, she seems to be falling for the inn’s owner––a man who's likely many years her senior––and who she’s never even met.

This is the second book in the Bride series and another great read! I found this to be a fresh storyline for myself and I thought it was just super cute. The two leading characters form a bond through letters to one another. Each forming an idea of what the other looks like and how old they are since they have not met in person yet. Closer to the end of the book the two met and instantly fall head over heels for each other but they are both leery as both have a past that makes them want to protect their hearts from being hurt.

This is the first book I have read by Deborah Raney but I loved how she made the story flow together well without hitting a dull area in the storyline. It is a short novel and keeps you reading as you grow to know both of the main characters and hope they will finally met sooner than later. 

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read A February Bride
